98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Cornas of the vintage is Clape’s 2012 Cornas. An incredible effort, its inky purple/black color is followed by spectacular aromas and flavors of black raspberry, graphite, beef blood, iron, cedar and white pepper (among other things). This is Cornas at its finest, with insane aromatics, full-bodied richness and massive concentration, yet at the same time staying elegant, seamless and gorgeously pure. It’s more approachable than the 2010, but should still need 3-4 years of cellaring and have two decades of longevity. (JD) (12/2014)

Opaque ruby. Heady aromas of fresh dark berries, cherry compote, potpourri and incense, along with a minerally topnote. Sweet and velvety in texture, offering deep, palate-staining dark berry and violet pastille flavors enlivened by juicy acidity. Supple tannins build slowly on the long, penetrating finish, which leaves notes of blue fruit and candied flowers behind. (2/2015)
